Je ne m’attendais à rien de particulier. En fait, j’avais hâte d’y goûter puisqu’un ami Mexicain me l’avait chaudement recommandé. Il affirmait que c’était bien meilleur que la Corona. Alors voilà, j’ai goûté. Ça ressemble beaucoup à la Corona, peut-être avec une petite touche un peu plus sucrée. Juste pour dire. Ça se laisse boire, c’est rafraîchissant. À prix égal, je la préfèrerais à la Corona, mais je ne sais pas pourquoi. Peut-être au cas où mon ami Mexicain viendrait faire un tour.

Can enjoyed on a hot day in rural Texas. Gold with a wisp of a head. Neutral nose, little to it. Flavor’s generally sweet. Sugar corn water. White bread. Cheap but not terrible.

huineman (276) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 11, 2015
Pale golden, headless. Very low aromas of honey, bread and iron. Watery, tasteless, high carbonation. Metallic finish.

Pretty standard fare. Golden pour. Grainy, sweet, cereal, corn. Watery mouthfeel. Just what you expect

Daanminator (248) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2015
Deze gedronken bij de mexicaan tilburg. Bier is mooi goud van kleur maar mist de schuimkraag. Bier heeft een waterige smaak maar ook iets van kruidig op de achtergrond. Nasmaak is fruitig, totaal niet bitter. Ik moet zeggen dat ik dit bier best wel lekker vond, zeker bij het mexicaans eten.

Why would you buy this foul tasting beer, when you can buy better AAL?. In fact, anything by BMC is better than this beer.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Grain and corn Appearance- pours a golden amber color with a large off-white head. Taste- Corn and grain Palate- Light bodied beer with moderate carbonation Overall- A typical macro Mexican import, it is better than Corona.

czar (5352) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 2, 2015
(not yet oxidized - darn - let sit aside for a while in the sun, then voilà) bottle from seb, thanks. pours clear bright gold without a head, dull looking. malt and corn extract, semi-sweet creamed corn, heavy grass, honey, cardboard, very chalky. light carbonation, light body - surprisingly not watery for its abv/quality; relatively dry and bland grassy-herbal finish. had worse, man.
